Please don't quote from any sources like this anymore whenyou know 100% it's just bunk. This isn't the first time eitherbut this is so bad it's worth letting you know about it. It's like you just want to fill space with no real news out there.

NL and I may have been sent the same info about an upcoming DSLR announcement.</p><p>Apparently a new â€œproâ€ camera will be announced in the next month. One of the key features is said to be the very wanted continuous focus in video mode.</p><p>No word whether or not itâ€™s a 1Ds or a 5D2 replacement.</p><p><strong>CRâ€™s Take</strong>I canâ€™t imagine a 1Ds getting the top video features first. In my opinion the camera is too big, cumbersome and expensive for mass market video. A 5D3 would be more than capable of being the flagship video HDSLR.</p><p>The best information I have so far about the 1Ds replacement is it being a medium format competitor, to me that says minimal focus on video features.</p><p>My $0.02 anyway, and it doesnâ€™t cost much more than that to change my mind.</p>
Does this now get upgraded from CR0 to CR0.5 or CR1 because of this: ?
Not likely. I think Iâ€™ll see a 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x before I see a 7D Mark II.
Well, I've just been to my local photograhic shop and they are doing a deal on the 5D II (body only) and the 5D II with 24-105 L IS USM. In both cases they are including a free BG-E6 grip.
Damn I hate premature excitement
